Question about Logitech Webcam

1 Answer

Feed realtime audio and vdeo from webcam back to laptop.

Hi! I have a Logitech 4000 wecam/mic connected via USB (with an extension totalling around 5 meters) to my Dell laptop running Windows XP. I'm running the webcam under the door to another room where I'm trying to monitor a new litter of kittens. The Mama cat is feral, so I'm trying to limit actually entering the room. The Logitech software lets me monitor realtime video in it's "Quick Capture" mode - waiting for me to snap a pic or record a video, but there's no live audio from the mic. I've tested the mic and playback functions, so I know the mic built into the webcam works, but so far the only way I've been able to get realtime audio AND video is through Windows MovieMaker in it's "ready to record" mode. However, the realtime video feed window is much smaller then the Logitech software offers. I could record videos with audio and play them back, but I want realtime monitoring, plus I have a limited amount of hard drive space left. Is there any easy way (for free) to get BOTH realtime video and audio?
Thanks, Mark.

    Thanks for the solution. Rather not buy more hardware if I can help it, though. Want to believe I can loop the audio back. Still, a good work-around. Thanks!

I have just brought a Logitec Webcam C120 and cannot get any sound. Do I have to get a microphone? When I do the sound test can't get any recording back.


Hi lynne_law ,

Many people mistakenly think that webcam can be used for audio as well as video transmission.

  1. Webcams don't usually come with microphones , therefore you would require a separate microphone for your voice recordings and voice chats.
  2. I would suggest you get a headset which would have the microphone option as well , or you can get a hand held mic.
  3. Once you get a new mic, you need to connect it to your computer by plugging in the mic in the appropriate slot , and by default the mic should work.
  4. If it does not work , you just need to change the microphone settings using the volume control option or audio settings via control panel.
Hope this helps ... ) Your feedback would be appreciated.

Lose webcam connection in Skype when using a headset


Have you checked the recording settings in Windows and in Skype? Try changing the default recording device to specifically indicate the device that has your headset plugged. I think the webcam also has a mic and that should not be selected.

Other thing to check is if there is some kind of resource conflict between your USB controller and audio card (use Device Manager).

QuickCam mic doesn't work


I read another post that said to go to Logitech itself for up-dates. This I did......downloaded all new drivers, etc. (the disc that comes with the cam must be out of date !). Then when that was done, I went back on Skype and where you do a 'voice test' I was able to this time around to "choose" my webcam - this was not coming up before at all. So in doing that it activated the mic on the webcam and all was OK. We seniors are supposed to be savvy with the forever changing world of electronic devices today! (LOL)

No sound when connected on aim


Is your microphone integrated into your webcam? Make sure the correct device is selected. Go into Edit, Settings, Enhanced IM. Under Audio and Video, make sure the Microphone device selected is a functioning mic, such as Logitech Mic, or if using a headset, select the USB headset (if usb) or your sound card if using a mic plugged into your built in or add-on sound card.

My mic doesnt work


to put that in cam microphone working, you need to see on audio settings properties and change the "recording device" to usb audio device, instaid of the soundcard as is. That means that the sound recording will be from the cam's microphone.
The steps are:
1- rigth mouse click on the speaker next to the clock OPEN VOLUME CONTROL
2- OPTIONS - PROPERTIES - RECORDING
3 - in MIXER/RECORDING DEVICE (where is your soundcard's name) change to USB AUDIO DEVICE and then OK
4- In the remaining volume control window, select MICROPHONE and then close all the volume control windows
5- you can test the mic settings in messenger (any version) because of volume and to a clearest voice sound in your pc.

ATTENTION: carefull with the distance between your cam and your sound speakers because of distorcing sound and feedback
